Women’s Health Exercise Programmes
My Fit Physio is an online physiotherapist led series of specialised pilates-based exercise programmes created for you to do in the comfort of your own home.
My Fit Physio
As a chartered physiotherapist specialised in Women’s Health, pilates instructor, runner and mother of four children I know that the postnatal journey is not always straight forward and that it may take time.
You might feel like everyone else has recovered quickly, returned to the gym or is out running and that your body is not recovering the same way.
You may feel a bit afraid of going back to your usual exercises in case you might cause harm.
You may feel that there are obstacles in front of in your return journey to sport.
You may have pelvic floor issues such as incontinence, prolapse, painful intercourse or tailbone pain that are lingering long after childbirth.
You might be moving into perimenopause and menopause and wondering how to navigate this new phase safely, strongly and with control.
You may be simply looking for a specialised women’s health approach to feeling strong and healthy as you recover from childbirth, return to exercise, train, work and look after your family.
I created My Fit Physio after years of working in a maternity hospital and in private practice, treating women for specific pregnancy-related issues and prescribing individual exercise programs, as well as teaching Pilates classes to groups of pregnant, postnatal, older women and sports groups. I wanted to be able to empower women to treat themselves at home using the exercise programmes that I have been delivering for years.
How it Works
My programmes are in the form of video classes and they provide education, advice as well as technique instruction through five levels of intensity. There are over twenty videos in each programme containing carefully chosen exercises based on the available scientific and on my experience of what has worked for my clients and for me over the years.
I believe in quality over quantity and hope to ensure that you are working at your own level at all times. When you purchase a programme you will own it so you can work around the demands of your family or work life to achieve your goals.
The videos range from 5 minutes to 45 minutes in duration so you can pace yourself based on the time you have to exercise that day and week. Your goals can be realistic and achievable to suit your needs.
Who is it suitable for?
These exercises programmes are suitable for anyone who has had a baby, whether it was 6 weeks ago or 30 years ago.
They are suitable for those who have a straight forward recovery but also for those who may have Diastasis Recti Abdominis (DRA), pelvic organ prolapse or pelvic floor dysfunction. They can prevent of treat any of these conditions also.
These programmes are for you if:
- You would like to build up your core safely after having a baby (recently or years previously), under the supervision of a Women’s Health expert.
- You think you have Diastasis Recti or Prolapse and you don’t know where to begin to exercise.
- You are experiencing leaking of urine/faeces/wind.
- You are experiencing pressure in your vagina which is worse at the end of the day or after you exercise.
- You have pelvic girdle pain weeks and months after your baby was born.
- Your physiotherapist or doctor has recommended that you start core or Pilates exercises.
